Narrator Jerry Dixon's strong performance and Philbrick's exceptional story about a young boy living through Hurricane Katrina ensure that this audiobook will become a classic. Zane Dupree travels to New Orleans from New Hampshire to meet his great-grandmother for the first time. During his visit they’re stranded by the hurricane. Eventually, they're rescued by Tru, an elderly musician, and a feisty girl named Malvina. Dixon perfectly captures Zane's voice as well as Tru's warmth and calm—which keeps the kids centered—and prickly Malvina—who is dealing with her absent mother. When they seek help, the trio meets the best and worst of people—all impeccably conveyed by Dixon. Listeners can almost SEE the people caught up in this American tragedy. S.G.B.
